Where has this week gone? It’s been a crazy week in the Frugal Rules home. My lovely wife decided it was time to start a potty training “Bootcamp” with our three year-old. So, we get the pleasure of running into the bathroom every two minutes. As if that was not enough fun, our ten month-old started standing up this week, which is great! However, his brother and sister have taken it upon themselves to create a new game…let’s see who can knock him over first! Unfortunately, our youngest does not view said game which much excitement. So, as you can imagine, this leads to just a BIT of nuttiness.

Just to give everyone a heads up, you’ll definitely want to come back on Monday. I am taking part in co-hosting an AWESOME giveaway that begins then. You’ll definitely want visit on Monday to find out what we’re giving away. I can’t say exactly what it is, but it’s one “i” would want under my Christmas tree! Speaking of giveaways…don’t forget about the $100 Cash/Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!

There have been some great blog posts in the blogosphere this week. I still have not come down on a hard number to keep my list to, but it’s my blog, so I can do what I want…right?!?  If you have the time, read some of these nice blog posts this weekend. Have a great weekend everyone!
